TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, announced today an offering of UV-SCE printable heat shrink sleeves suitable for identification of wires and cables where some exposure to UV light is possible. Industrial applications include rail, mass transit, lighting, solar and HVAC.


“Our printable heat shrink tubing capabilities are not only for indoor applications. For those outdoor applications where UV light is of concern, TE offers a solution for this type of harsh environment. UV-SCE couples the ease of use on our thermal transfer marking systems, yet it addresses needs for substrates that maybe exposed to some exposure to UV light, in addition to being rated at -55C to 200C.” said Tom Perea, industry sales manager, Americas.


In addition to its resistance of Ultra Violet Light, UV-SCE is non-flame propagating and is resistant to key rail and industrial fluids including diesel. Product performance and testing details can be found in RW 2534 and Technical datasheet: TTDS-255 on te.com. UV-SCE does not contain any declarable or prohibited substances from the UNIFE Railway Industry Substances List. Additionally, UV-SCE is REACH and RoHS compliant.


TE’s Identification Solutions portfolio offers a complete solution for harsh environments. By, using preloaded templates in TE’s WINTOTAL software users can ‘see’ the sleeve and inputted data on the user’s computer screen. Seeing it before you print it, saves valuable time and money. Our range of thermal transfer printers along with coordinating UV resistant ribbon ensures print permanency for years to come.
